State-of-the-Art MRI Imaging
Pioneers Medical Center is one of the first hospitals in Colorado, and the only hospital on the Western Slope, to offer the advanced imaging provided by the Hitachi Echelon Oval wide bore MRI machine. The Echelon Oval’s ultra-wide 74 cm opening and short overall length promote unparalleled levels of patient comfort while maintaining a superior field of view and image quality. The machine uses adjustable airflow, lighting and two-way communication to provide an even better patient experience. In addition, the machine accommodates the extra-wide 63 cm patient-friendly table.
By using a patient-friendly MRI system such as the Echelon Oval, we’re able to minimize, or in some cases completely eliminate, many of the challenges facing Imaging Departments, including:
Elderly population compliance/tolerance
The opening of the Echelon Oval MRI is almost 30 inches wide, and it allows patients to go into the scanner feet first. This helps reduce patient anxiety about their scan. In addition, the Echelon Oval’s powerful technology includes sound dampening and fast scanning, allowing your imaging to be completed as quickly and quietly as possible.
7:30 a.m. To 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
After-hour coverage is provided on an on-call basis 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Pioneers partners with Mountain Radiology located in Glenwood Springs, and their radiologists to oversee the readings, and report their professional interpretation to the physician. Note that patients will receive a separate bill from “Mountain Radiology” for radiology interpretation services.
